celticdragonfly: (Firefly - going mad)
Last night my computer Agatha went down.

I'd been having a bit of a rough weekend anyway - and had been way overdue for dinner - and [livejournal.com profile] selenite had sweetly gone out to get me what I wanted - and the place had closed before he got there. Not good. Then the computer abruptly shut down. Would not come back up. A few minutes later there was a POP and a flash from the back and a trickle of *smoke*. My computer has failed the smoke test. The magic smoke has escaped. AAAGGGHHHH!!!!!

There is hope that it is just her power supply and maybe the guys can fix it for me sometime soon. There won't be a chance for that for the next couple of days, though.

I feel crippled. It's amazing how much I depend on it. Last night, I had Agatha on the kitchen table, had been cleaning all the dust off her case, and then was helping [livejournal.com profile] selenite give teething meds to the baby, and realized we needed more baby ibuprofen, and unthinkingly headed to my computer desk to add it to the grocery list - AGH, no, no computer. Last night I kept wanting to recheck email before going to bed. This morning I came downstairs and instinctively headed towards my computer desk, then no no no AGH!

I'm posting this from Gilgamesh, [livejournal.com profile] selenite's computer, which I will probably borrow now and then. Bugs me to have my favorite communications methods down. I will at least check email over here regularly.

I know some of my flist is also on Ravelry. Can y'all check for me please - can you get on the site? Because I can't, and I don't know if that's because there are site problems, or if it just won't let me log in from this computer. I thought I was doing it right...

Sigh... please nothing else break. It's unnerving and annoying to not have access to my prosthetic extra brains. GAH. I was going to fix a tank top I did for Maggie that needs the shoulders redone, but I need to look up what size needles I used.

I think I'll go back to piecework now - hand work, using needle, thread, squares of fabric, and me eyeballing it. Very low tech.
